Investment Advice for Hard Economic Times

If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock a year ago, you'd have $42 left.

With Lehman Brothers, you'd have $6.60 left.

With Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, you'd have less than $5.

But if you purchased $1,000 worth of beer a year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund, you'd have $214.*

This economic theory is completely in line with my investment tactics, save one grave error. I am drinking from glass bottles instead of metal. Dang. Who knew cheap beer was the better growth market?
